Another skyline fire in Joburg


One good thing about living downtown in a city like Johannesburg is you never quite know what you’re going to see from your balcony with a glass of wine in hand.


This was actually the second time the building went up in flames on this Friday night.

Johannesburg emergency services spokesperson, Robert Mulaudzi said the fire reignited after emergency personnel left the scene.

Earlier in the day, a man trapped inside the 25-storey building was rescued and taken to hospital.

Although the spokesperson said he didn’t know the cause of the fire, I for one find it interesting that the initial blaze was on the lower floors but later in the evening it reignited on the top floor. A case of moving up the cabling or something.

Never a dull moment.
